I was going to try to sleep in today, just to make sure I made it to midnight, but that was a no go. You know, when I went out for New Year’s I never had a problem with that… ha!
Runeway18, thanks for the comment. How sweet you are! So you have actually passed part of that dreaded exam?! Kudos to you! I should have taken it when I graduated 4 years ago. Ugh. Oh well, it will definitely be an experience. Plus there is no going back for me… it’s paid for and that could have bought me a LOT of shoes, so there is no wasting it!
I keep reading about all these resolutions… I was trying to think about what I could make mine. For so many years it was to stop smoking, but I never could smoke long because it seems I was always getting pregnant and then breastfeeding. So really it was- smoke for a year, stop for two- for the last decade. But, I finally stopped no matter what for good last April (and I think that has contributed to the widening of my booty… I weigh 16 pounds more now than I did then). So that leaves that one out. And a couple of years ago I resolved to let the people in my life know that I love them all the time, not just when something happened or I needed something. It’s so hard to stay connected. And I think I did that one pretty well, too, so that leaves that out. Hmmmmm… Maybe instead of a resolution, I will make a list of goals.
-Take and pass all parts of the CPA. There is nothing hotter than a nerdy accountant.
-Run in a 5K and a 10K. Oh, and the World Famous Mud Run, cause the only thing hotter than a nerdy accountant is a muddy, nerdy accountant with a hot bod!
-Have a baby and shut down the baby maker for GOOD! Including getting all of the dysfunctional parts of me removed. Preferrably a girl, please. Thanks.
-Stay fit if I do get pregnant. I don’t know if I have ever told anyone this before, but when I stopped looking at the scale (which was a good 2 weeks BEFORE I delivered my first son) I weighed in at 267. I know, crazy. I gained 67 with the 2nd, and 37 with the 3rd (although I
weighed 20 pounds more than normal when I got pregnant with the 3rd, so it evens out). I hope I can continue the downward pattern and NOT gain 5 bazillion pounds this time…
-Reteach my children acceptable food behavior. They are healthy eaters for the most part, but I have them thinking there are “bad” foods and “good” foods, and they talk about going on diets. Seriously, they are tiny lil beanpoles! I have called myself fat one too many times, and I am going to stop that. In all actuality, I make chubby look damn good. No more bad self talk, especially not in front of the boys. Everything is going to be healthy or not as healthy or unhealthy.
Hmmmm… that is it for now, I suppose. Oh, and I resolve to quit my job. Which I still haven’t done. But technically I still don’t feel well! Okay, I am just a chicken and I don’t want to ruin anyone’s holiday. I am doing it though. Promise.
Have a great day, chickies! And a Happy New Year!!!
